Meka Allgood grew up in a small Tennessee town and graduated from Middle Tennessee State University where she majored in Political Science. As an only child she spent countless hours alone reading and this is where the love affair with the literary world began. Her first professional writing related work was in 2009 as a freelancer when she began writing and editing media kit bios for independent music artists. That work led to opportunities to write press releases for various events around the Nashville area as well as proofread and edit contracts. Six years doing freelance work, while working over 10 years full time in the finance world has given her a unique perspective that few people get to experience. Meka writes on a broad range of subjects that include travel, personal finance, fashion and parenting. She looks forward to blogging and is in process of creating a travel blog. She currently lives outside of Nashville, Tennessee with her two daughters and two dogs.

Her job fits her personality quite well as she naturally tends to ask a lot of questions to have a better understanding of messages being sent, of feelings being expressed and of actions being taken. Nicole feels most at home outdoors, on the lake, in the mountains, wherever nature is at its most pure.  She is proud to be a part of as it challenges her to get out of her day to day “to-do” list, connect more with herself and people like you!

Tessa is at home with a camera in her hand, a dream in her heart and an adventure in her sights.  She dances through each day, stopping occasionally to doodle, strum her guitar, read a book, or consider her story in the light of her faith in Christ.  And sometimes she writes about how the world looks through her 18 year-old eyes.  Tessa's blog is a gathering place for her photos, dreams and stories.
